Edmond O’Halloran started the weekend competition in blistering form by smashing the 2003 110m hurdles record of 14.71 with a time of 14.48. This bodes well for Edmond as heads off to Finland this week for the European Youth Olympics.
The younger athletes performed well in the sprints, with Eli Kadi finishing third in the boys U13, Darren Lee finished an extremely close second in his BU14 sprint, while Sean O’Callaghan had his strongest run of the day to finish third in the U12 60m.
Jack Murphy’s form returned to see him finish second in the BU12 LJ with a jump of 4.34m. U15 athlete Robert Nagle competing in his first season, finished an impressive third (just 1cm behind second place) in his long jump competition.
Patrick Maher, who was unlucky not to get EYOD selection, ran a very impressive 400m hurdle to take an emphatic gold in a time of 54.85. Within 2 hours of this victory he lined up for the 400m and finished second in this race.
Chris Murnane competing is his last individual juvenile event, finished second in the BU19 400m. While his younger brother Matthew ran a PB of 1.49.22 to finish 6th in the BU12 600m.
Paul Scanlan, who has also been selected for the EYOD’s finished a very close second in BU17 400m, his time of 50.15, would have beaten the previous record.
We wish Edmond and Paul the very best for the European Youth Olympics. We hope hat they enjoy their experience and compete to their potential.
